Cool Roll Centers

I have searched the threads and cannot come up with a decent understanding for roll center.. As in, to increase/decrease rear chassis roll, do you lower the camber link to raise the c.g, vice versa? Also would just changing the length of the link to increase/decrease camber intake affect the c.g. If any of the above mentioned is even remotely correct, any informational link or answer by someone with great expertise in this area would be great. I am just confused as if someone says to raise the roll center of the vehichle do I lower or raise the r.c. positions or vice versa..
Thanks..

On the front: If you want to lower the RC, you raise the hingepin bracket, and viceversa.

On the rear: to raice the RC, you lower the the upper arm mount on the INSIDE or raise the link on the hub side, and/or raice the lower arm.(this will give you more rotation, make the rear looser)

I got those from the Hudy Setup Book, you can download it.
